@LilacHearts:  I know waiting sucks, but it sounds like your guy is aware of your feelings on getting engaged and is moving foward with plans! You just need to remember that some men are slower about things and they are all about timing. It’s ok if he wants to wait for your brothers news to die down before he starts making it all about the two of you.

@LilacHearts:  i am so sorry, i feel your pain ๐Ÿ™

but maybe his brother’s upcoming proposal is why he didn’t? knowing his brother was proposing to his girlfriend he would have decided against doing the same thing.

just know when the time comes it will be perfect and better than you ever imagined ๐Ÿ™‚

Is it possible that his brother told your SO that he would propose and that made your SO not proposing to you?  Maybe he’s ordering the ring and he doesn’t have it yet?  Maybe he’s waiting for Christmas to propose to you?  My husband wanted to propose to me on Christmas day but he didn’t have enough time to get a ring so it didn’t happen on that day.  Finally he proposed to me on a Valentine’s Day.  I’d say just be patient.  In a month or two, he won’t be stealing your brother’s thunder anymore.

Ugh, the waiting game sucks.  But just know that when it happens, it’ll be amazing.  And you can come to us bees and we will listen to all your vents/rants/whatevers as you patiently wait for the right time.  In the meantime, you can start planning in your head the details about the wedding that you’d like so that when he finally does pop the question, you’ll be all set! ๐Ÿ™‚

@LilacHearts:  sounds like a weak excuse.  Yo should really get under why he isn’t proposing.

I went on a camping trip a few weeks ago (as some may know if youve read my posts) and did not get a proposal. I had CONVINCED myself that I was going to.. and I was absolutely CRUSHED. I can totally understand that you feel like you had a breakup.. I did too. I was hurting so much .

BUT it changed me a little after a few days.. I did not want to feel that again so I set some goals and kept busy bettering myself (gym, hot yoga, new outfit, d omy nails, organize photos) and things have been going GREAT.. i do still have horrible waiting days but I honestly feel like having that crushing experience has ultimately made things easier.

I hope that my experience helps and that you can turn your experience into a good thing too ๐Ÿ™‚
